Honda NILS Racing set for 2022 World Supercross Championship

Honda NILS has today been announced as the 10th and final team set to compete in the 2022 FIM World Supercross Championship. The team will announce its four riders in the coming weeks as it prepares for the championship kicking off on Saturday 8 October in Cardiff, Wales at Principality Stadium. 

“We are incredibly excited to have Honda NILS join us on our journey. Our pilot season boasts strong teams from the US, France and Australia, fielding incredible riders from across the globe,” said Adam Bailey, managing director – motorsport for SX Global. “Having a trailblazer like Livia Lancelot, who has contributed so much to the sport both on and off the race track, serving as team manager adds another layer of excitement and intrigue around this team and our series.”

34-year-old Lancelot won the first ever women’s motocross world championship in 2008 and followed it up with another world title run in 2016. After retiring from competition, she has worked as a team manager since 2017 in the MX2 class of the MXGP world championship scoring multiple podiums. She now becomes the most decorated female team manager in supercross anywhere in the world. 

“We are excited to get to work and believe we will make a strong showing during the pilot FIM World Supercross Championship season,” said Lancelot. Our offseason is only a few weeks, so we are quickly working to get riders and crew members under contract, and bikes ready to race, all while tackling the logistics a global series requires. It’s a great challenge, and we are ready to face it.”

About FIM World Supercross Championship
The FIM World Supercross Championship (WSX) is a comprehensive global championship led by SX Global in Australia. The world governing body for motorcycle sport, Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), awarded SX Global the exclusive organizational and commercial rights to stage and promote the World Supercross Championship commencing in 2022. The global championship represents the most progressive and ambitious platform to elevate the sport of supercross and expand its appeal across the globe. WSX will follow the established two-class format, with each independently owned team fielding four riders – two in the WSX (450cc) class, and two in the SX2 (250cc) class with a prize purse of up to USD$250,000 at each event. With more than $50 million allocated over the first five years, the global championship features an unprecedented level of financial support for teams and riders, including seed funding for every team awarded a license, appearance fees at every event, and logistics and freight support. The independent team ownership model, similar to that of F1 and NASCAR, will expand opportunities for global and local sponsors. WSX will offer an elevated experience for fans, through unique race formats, broadcast innovations, and in-stadium attractions that elevate the overall entertainment experience.
